Hearts on a String Scarf

Hearts on a String

OK, I didn’t plan on making anything specifically for Valentine’s Day this year, but then my oldest daughter told me that she had to wear something with hearts on it for school this Friday.  I had to think of something quick that used some yarn from my stash.  This is what I came up with.  Since my older daughter is at school now, I talked my younger daughter into modeling the scarf for me.  She hates pink, things that match and fixing her hair.  She was a good sport though and agreed, with very little bribing, to have her picture taken for the blog.

As always, this pattern has not been tested so if you notice any problems with it please let me know either in the comments section or at CrochetBot3000@gmail.com. You can also find me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Crochetbot3000.

  1. Your work is fantastic! – the best, most interesting crochet I’ve seen. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us. :)

  2. This heart scarf is adorable! I might try 2 short lengths – and then put them together so that when worn, the hearts will be facing the same direction when worn.

    Of course, first I have to actually make this! More patterns are printed with all good intentions.
